Instagram is working on a new feature that allows you to choose if you want to receive 2FA codes through WhatsApp Messenger or WhatsApp Business!
The feature has been announced by alex193a, always careful to discover the latest news on the Instagram platform (and more):

As you can see in the screenshot, you can choose WhatsApp if you enable SMS first. This feature will be optional and, if you don’t feel safe, you can always enable the app authentication to generate 2FA codes.
In our opinion, this is a good option to rely on, especially when WhatsApp will enable the support for multi device, so you can receive 2FA codes to log into Instagram from the web even if your main device is off.
The feature is under development and it will be available in a future update on Instagram for Android and iOS. Stay tuned to discover more features and news!
